Mother Nature does. Teach your dogs to pee outside and save on remodeling costs.

Agreed; save yourself the trouble of double house training and adding to the world's garbage pile. Imagine having to clean up a pad from an adult GSD!

A little more awareness of the people you direct ads like this to, a forum like this one, would be a good idea.

I think this product has no place in a home, unless one is caring for an incontinent dog in hospice care. Even then, you can just line their bed or crate with washable towels and old blankets for a more environmentally friendly solution to leaking.


I have a friend who has 5 adult dogs, large and small -- and all them are trained on pee pads. His house reeks of urine, and it's freaking disgusting. He can't find a dog sitter who will come take care of them when he travels because it's so gross to do the daily pee pad change. Now that that guy's dogs are well-trained on the pads, he can't get them to go outside -- they view the room with the pee pads as the universal toilet. He ignored my advice re crating and having an "outside only" toileting policy as the dogs came to him one by one...and now he's got a tough living situation. He's single, so there's nobody else in the home that it bothers, but he's probably going to be single forever living in the House of Pee.

I've never understood how the puppy pee pad market stays afloat. I've used many over the years, as an underlayment in baby bird brooders to ensure dryness overnight and prevent splay leg.

(Not for dogs.)

The "underpads" sold for medical and hospice uses for humans are superior not only in function, but cost less and are sold in mulch more sensible bulk quantities. The packaging has a boring medical logo on it, there's no cute smiling cartoon puppy on the box, but the product is cheaper and better. Blows my mind. Marketing.

I know they seem ridiculous for a GSD, and I agree, but there are times they’re very handy. I’ve used them in an expen for elderly Italian Greyhounds, who were too rickety for bad weather, and for those same iggies when they were puppies and wouldn’t go out in the pouring rain. I had a bunch of the cloth hospital ones. They also came in handy when my elderly Dobe was leaky. I put a waterproof sheet in the chair and then a cloth pee pad.

Your local garden center. Squares of sod are infinitely superior for housetraining a puppy (when you must leave him on his own). Pup develops strong lifetime scent and texture preference for grass immediately without a need to transition; clean up the poop right away, let the pee soak in b/c dogs like to pee where there's pee, replace square once a week or more often if needed. Breeder can successfully start housetraining with a square in the puppy area as soon as the pups are able to walk. Cheaper and more eco friendly too, like those cool fabric baby diapers they're coming out with now.

I'd be careful about that. Sod is held together with a plastic mesh that you don't want them chewing/eating. A loose piece of sod could turn into a toy.
